Your rattling noise in engine bay ,dose it do it only when you start up, and if so dose the rattle go when the oil light on dash goes out, If yes then its either Low in oil/your parking on a slope/engine bearings worn/oil filter change and change oil to 30/50 oil.
you should only downshift to 1st whan stopped but you can change up and down the g/box without a clutch with correct Revs

This is normal for a 210K Toyota Corolla. What you are hearing is the sound made by the power steering pump. Check fluid level and fill as needed. Some noise in the instances you are mentioning is normal.
